Music boxes

Music boxes
Music boxes have within melodies they carry in them, once they're open music feels the air;
Every person you have known has a song of their own, once they open up you'll hear whats there;
Every person longs to find who they are deep inside, every person yearns to know their place..."

Peter

Last Sunday we talked about Peter in Sunday School.
Peter is known to be a man of little faith, because he sinks in the ocean on his way to Jesus. But I do have another opinion on this.

I love Peter. To me, he is not an example of little faith, but of courage to look for the Lord when in desperate need for help. How many disciples ventured their way into the sea, walking on water? Only one. And when he saw the raging waves and strong winds, he waivered, yes, he did; like we all do in this life. But Peter had the courage to start to walk toward Jesus. Better yet, when he felt himself sinking, he knew who to turn to for help. And even better than that... the Bible doesn't say anything about Jesus carrying little Peter back to the boat. Jesus helped him only to get back on his feet. They both walked back to the others afterwards.

How many of us would have the faith to get out there in the first place? And how many of us would have the courage to TRY AGAIN, with no doubt this time, even after we failed?

I love the story of Peter. It's one of courage, strenght, faith, and recognition that with the Lord, we can do all things.
